Beat Ray At Del Mar: Another Feather In Billy Koch’s Cap?

It’s only week two of the Beat Ray Everyday Beach Boss competition at Del Mar and I’m going to violate the first rule of holes: namely, when you’re in one, stop digging.

I got myself into a hole last weekend when Rushie, the 3-1 third betting choice in the Grade 2 San Diego Handicap, ran an uninspiring sixth at the seaside track near San Diego, Calif. My mythical $100 wager ($70 win, $30 show) went up in smoke while my Beach Boss opponent, Scotty McKeever (@ScottyPick6) of Equinedge.com, was all in on the race winner, Express Train, his $100 win wager returning $390.

This week’s Beach Boss challenger is Little Red Feather Racing founder Billy Koch, who will attempt to do the unthinkable and defeat me two years in a row.

I’m going to keep digging to get out of that first week hole, so I’m betting against Going Global, who will be gunning for her sixth consecutive win and fifth since being imported into the U.S. and joining Phil D’Amato’s barn. She’ll be the heavy favorite in a field of 11, draws a favorable inside post position and gets leading rider Flavien Prat.

Watch this week’s Beach Boss video, hosted by Michelle Yu, to see where Billy and I land with our wagers.

And it’s not too late to sign up, as the Beach Boss contest continues every day of the summer racing season. Bet a mythical $100 each day and at the end of the meet, the player with the largest bankroll will win two VIP tickets to this year’s Breeders’ Cup at Del Mar. Sign up and get all the details here.
